A quick Hello + some videos

Hi everyone,

thanks for stopping by. I know, most of you where expecting a crafting post today. Unfortunately, I was pretty sick for a couple of days, too sick to craft or crochet. But I didn't want to leave you with nothing so here are two random videos I recorded just recently. If you follow me on YouTube you might have already watched them :)

This one I recorded just a couple of days ago. For about just 5 minutes we had the most magical Winter evening sky here in Kassel.



And the next one I recorded while I was on a short vacation in Leipzig with my mom. While there we went to the panometer where there's currently a 360° Great Barrier Reef Exhibition. In January 2017 I think they will set up a 360° Titanic Exhibition which sound pretty cool too. I am actually thinking about coming back just to see that one but let's see. Here's a short impression of the Great Barrier Reef Exhibition:



It was that Leipzig trip by the way after which I came home and got sick right on the same day. I then called my mom the same night to complain about how bad I felt and then realized my mom also got sick. Bad luck, I guess :) 

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for some crafty content this Sunday!

Yours

Cotton Scrubbies again

Hello everyone,

after months I finally had the opportunity to meet with my best friend Kristin and her lovely little family last week! Oh I can't tell you how happy it made me to finally see her and my little god-daughter again!

Of course as a guest I brought some gifts. I prefer to make at least part of those gifts myself and this time I went with a set of cotton spiral scrubbies :)

They turned out really well, I am definitely happy with the result:



The wool is Wolle Rödel Cotton Universal which is 100% cotton.

I used a pattern for these which I already tried out last year and did some modifications here and there. You can find the original pattern right HERE.

And here's how I modified it:

Round 1: Magical Ring, CH 1, 1 SC into ring, 1 HDC into Ring, 10 DC into ring [12]


Round 2: 2 DC into each stitch of round 1 [24]


Rouns 3: *2 DC into next stitch, 1 DC into next stitch* repeat until 2 stitches from the second round are left. 1 HDC into next stitch, 1 SC into next stitch, fasten off yarn and sew in end seamless.


The rest goes as described in the original pattern.

If you have questions, please let me know :)

Happy hookin' everyone!

Christmas Preparations in Downtown Kassel

Hi everyone,

today I have a short video for you that isn't really about crafting or crocheting. But what I want to share with you is extremely cute and therefore absolutely worth sharing :)

Check out the video below, it's self-explaining...

Felt Animals for my Christmas Tree

Hello everyone,

just lately, I finished these cute little felt animals:



They are supposed to be hanging on my Christmas Tree this year :)

All in all, these little guys turned out to be a quite time-consuming project. The prototypes alone took me about 1.5 hours each. But I am really happy with the result!

How are your Christmas preparations coming along?

Yours
Uta
